This can turn leftover rice and/or leftover meat into another meal (with some veggies snuck in because they're good for you)

This recipe is a new favorite in my family. I don't like celery or mushrooms so I substituted canned peas and corn instead. Even my five year old loves it! My husband had four plates and there is still plenty left over.
